Nice gardens and plenty of benchs, chairs to sit and sun

March has spring flowers but tree leaves have not arrived. Pond has model toy sailboats for rent that are great for small children to play.

Even in March, this was a great place to take a walk. There were some plants flowering and the statues were great to admire. Very peaceful!

Playground is happy and safe. Gardens are lovely for walking and relaxing. Lots of cafes close by. Easy walk from subway. Cafe in the park is average. It migt be wise to bring a picnic or eat in a nearby cafe.

Great family hours spent in the gardens, enjoying the playgrounds and savoring ice cream. Beautifully manicured and very French.

This is a lovely public park and a good place to eat lunch (when/where allowed), casually stroll around or just sit and people watch. It may get crowded on a nice day but there is ample space for everyone including a lot of lawn space and many chairs/benches in various areas of the park

I have visited these gardens 3-4 times during all my stays in Paris. They are truly beautiful. You find a lot of different trees and flowers. It's a very good place for a picnic and a nice walk. There are hidden statues everywhere you walk.

During my recent visit, the weather was perfect for a stroll through the gardens and a picnic. Sandwiches are available across the street from the entrance, so pull up a seat and watch the little kids play with their boats. Pure paradise.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
